When I last posted about the Dune Cabin here, we were taking a breather as we discussed how we were going to make sure this little place does not end up on the west coast of the island during one of our winters storms!
In the interim we built a wood shed and as you can see there is plenty of wood waiting to be split and stacked!
Finally....solutions worked out the trusses begin to go up.
Trusses up(had to use all our decking material!) the perlins and strapping goes on. For the high up work we let the pros due the work!
The neighbours came to watch the progress and give advice!
We recycled more hand hewn timbers from the old dismantled wood shed on the property.
|More discussion on whether there should be a wrap around deck.|
The post go in for deck on the north side of the cabin...so there will be a deck on half the cabin!
The rafters are on over the deck and the sheathing is going on the cabin.
The next step will be the sheathing on the roof, the ice and rain shield and the tin!
